The parking garage is not attached to the building. There is a non-functional elevator in a very dark corner of the parking garage. Be very careful. There is a strong vanilla order in the hotel that seems to be trying to mask some other odor. If you are sensitive to smells you should be aware of this. I had difficulty with telephone support. When calling with a simple question/request, I was met with indifference and waited on hold for it to boot.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I am terribly sorry you did not find the parking situation to your satisfaction. As a downtown hotel parking is at a premium. The parking garage is not attached to the building, but is a safe 25-30 foot walk to the hotel. Valet parking is always an option as well. Again, my sincere apologies for your issues. We do hope to see you again in the future.

Correct yet efficient service at this Hotel. If you desire the little extras that make a business trip tolerable, choose the Hilton President. Also, for dining options you do not have to stray far, not even out the door. The Providence Restaurant is a great choice for dinner whether you are alone or with colleagues. Top Notch menu selection and internet access are a great combo when preparing for tomorrow's meeting!

Stayed a night for a business visit. Great location, very clean, professional staff, and great dining options. I highly recommend this hotel! Also, the parking garage is very well maintained and right behind the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding weekend where most events took place at the hotel. The hotel provided shuttle service to rehearsal dinner location, great space for bridal party to get ready in, phenomenal service, etc. Basically the crew here made sure all needs were met by everyone involved with the wedding and provided a beautiful venue for the event. I would highly recommend this venue for any event! Also--Sammy the event coordinator is wonderful :)

This place is unique and beautiful. Love staying here and both weddings I've attended here have been lovely. The banquet room is absolutely breathtaking. The rooms are clean and the location is perfect for Power & Light district.

Pros
Clean room
Room service
Friendly and most importantly, very helpful staff
Ideal if not the best location
Beautiful lobby
Quick checkin


Cons
Parking is a bit expensive but if you can afford this hotel you can afford $18-$20 daily parking.
(I used the 4 hour meter parking that was around the corner which is 25 cents every 15 minutes)

I didn't get a chance to order room service or visit the bar/lounge. Overall, I was impressed with my stay at this hotel and I will be back anytime I am in this location.

Thanks for the wonderful review of your visit to our hotel. Point taken about the price of our parking. It is in line with every downtown hotel, but as you pointed out there are some options if you don't wish to pay for the valet service or self parking. We hope to see you again in the future!

We enjoyed one night at this historic hotel. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. We left our window open and did not have any problems with noise. Our breakfast was included with our room and the food was great. We spent quite a lot of time walking around this area.

Room Tip: try and get a room on a higher floor
